PCD Connectathon/Showcase WG

Action Items

Due Dates and Item:

  • Open Date: Monitor registrations for various actors. The next update will be available soon.
  • Jan. 7: (Manny) Update on ADT/patient-visitor id and association with systems. Focused meeting, include diagram and other information to be provided.
  • Manny will contact John Donnelly to learn if HIMSS Convention Registration will include an MRN barcode, what the barcode standard will be
- Ruth asked if GE Enterprise and Epic would provide ADT messages to PCD systems that can use ADT.
- Ruth raised questions about associating devices and systems, and how patients are admitted/discharged or removed. This year one patient may start, another end on a given wall. The data from the first clinical site the visitor attends must flow from that area to the next.
- Al suggested that a visitor be registered at the Showcase, and that Epic, GE re-register them on the global ADT system and PCD systems can listen to that updated registration.
- Location information may or may not be required by any system, even if there is a workaround required. Systems will have only one bed, one patient at a time.
- Patient would be registered by Ruth or Colin and they would create a subset with a separate feed for PCD available to and Cerner and Epic
- Manny to ask John Donnelly again about registration – will it be all HIMSS registrations or just Showcase.
- Manny to schedule another meeting to resolve remaining issues.
  • Dec. 23: (All) Provide material for the Scenario (outline or brief description) to be followed by Manny compiling a single view.

Review of Meeting Notes: Corrections should be made to the Wiki; significant issues placed on agenda of the next meeting

Item Topic Discussion
1 Introductions & Agenda Review
- Manny
John Donnelly participated to discuss ADT issues. This was the first order of business.



2 ADT Planning
- Manny
  • HIMSS will place an MRN bar code and visual ID on the badge. The group requested code 128.
  • The ADT system will support any system that wants it. John said the electronic ADT system can include other defined information such as DOB, infusion order, summary record.
  • HIMSS is trying to have one large registration system for all who attend the meeting. John suggested having a PCD registration kiosk where only the PCD visitors would be entered. This would trigger a second instance of the database that would provide PAM and PDQ for PCD. This kiosk might also provide the location for the IHE video presentation. The PCD docent will use the visitor's badge to register the patient. Ruth is thinking of providing a Postscript printer located on the kiosk to meet her needs for bar code for the BCMA. That will be a unique order number ("give code").
  • John asked about the need to have only patient on each wall at a time. We need to include something to avoid having to discharge the patient.
  • PCD systems may use the visitor's badge as the link to the ADT system, whether they have direct access to the ADT system or not.



  • As above.

3 Action Items
- Manny
  • Participants were reminded to provide Scenario Scripts. We will be defining the sequence of presentations in detail for John Donnelly.
- HIMSS will print a playbill or similar document (see last year's as an example) and we will need to have a summary of our Scenario.
  • John Garguilo requested updated MWB profiles from anyone who may be able to contribute to the development of the validation tool. He will arrange a time next week for conferencing with Pete Rontey. At this time no formal MWB profiles exist for ACM or PIV. Monroe pointed out that content of messages will depend upon sample messages from ARs since the parameter and workflow messages must be defined by them. Monroe referred to a descriptive email. John Rhoads offered to work on this. Al will update the PCD-01 profile and share that with Pete. John will speak with Todd about finding someone to take the supplements and generate MWB profiles.
  • Updated structure diagrams and utilities were distributed. Manny estimated requirements for those who hadn't provided their data and they were asked to send the information.
  • Participants were asked to review the Action Items for relevant issues and address those not discussed.
  • Dates will be extended.

Items with other dates:

Those closed were:

  • Portions of the ADT issue, as above.



  • As above.
